A great way to cool off from the summer heat in Italy is to try a delicious Brioche (or brioscia) filled with ice cream (or Italian gelato)! A broiche is actually a croissant, and in used in the northern regions of Italy. In the central and southern regions, you will hear the term "cornetto" to indicate a croissant, but they are typically sweeter than the French version. However, when you do hear the term brioche in the central and southern regions, it will almost always refer to a croissant filled with gelato. Sometimes it is filled with jelly or a hazelnut cream. The ingredients are flour, egg, butter and yeast.
